The newly inducted head prefects Rohan Nair and Leonie Biu are all set to lead Saraswati Primary School.

The Year 8 students were inducted as headboy and headgirl during the school’s prefects induction ceremony in Dilkusha, Nausori yesterday.

Leonie, 14, of Levukana, Vanuabalavu, said with the help and support of her juniors and teachers, she would become a good leader.

“We have to be strong and do well whenever we can, but with the help of all students, prefects and teachers,” she said.

“We have to carry out our responsibilities in our new roles and trust that we will carry those responsibilities throughout the year with diligence, firmness and compassion when the occasion calls for it,” she said.

Rohan, 14, of Dilkusha, Nausori, said prefects must have leadership traits.

“Traits of a good leader are honesty, courageous, inspiring, dependable and fair,” he said.

“We need to do a fair call for all issues in order to provide justice for everyone.

“We must be able to have good character and behaviour.”

Schol head teacher of the school, Ramesh Chand, said to the newly inducted prefects know that leadership was about being in service to others, not being served by others.

“Be a mentor, not a boss,” Mr Chand said.

“Always speak in such a way that others love to listen to you.

“The most powerful leadership tools you have is your own personal example and remember you can do what I cannot do, but together we can do great things.”
